Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. (Proverbs 29:18)

Behold Our Current Sad State Of Affairs Within Christendom

I don’t think anyone with even a modicum of spiritual acumen would deny that the first part of this text is a virtual mirror of twenty-first century postmodern America. Sin blatantly thrown into our faces at almost every turn. Proud boasters prowling their stages decked out with shiny ornate jewelry and spouting vile blasphemies over loud music to adoring crowds who cheer it wildly.

And by the way, I’m not just talking about the heretics you see daily on Trinity Broadcasting Network either; for you can find this very same kind of “entertainment” in secular rap venues as well. Hmm, but you know…it does give us pause for thought here though, does it not?

The current New Downgrade within evangelicalism, fueled as it is by the sinfully ecumenical Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church, is sad indeed. Don’t you see; while influential evangelicals continue to ignore the onslaught of this new form of liberalism with so-called “big tent” Progressive Christianity—which is a blatant denial of God’s Gospel—and growing acceptance of the self-aggrandizing spiritual pride of the Word Faith Movement, people are indeed casting off restraint.

And you know what, it is the Lord Himself Who is allowing this to happen. Remember though, it’s not like our Father didn’t give us warning, because He did say – And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God (Ephesians 4:30). I‘m regularly asked: “Why do you criticize people like Rick Warren or Rob Bell; they are only trying to portray God in a positive light.” And then they’ll go on to say: “You’re just jealous of all the people they are reaching because what you are preaching only turns people off and you’re not reaching anyone.” Can you see the flaw here?

I don’t reach anybody…they are reaching thousands. However, the truth is none of us can convert anybody to Christ, no matter what we do or how much we promise them. Perhaps we have little revelation of God today because the so-called seeker driven pragmatism of casual Christianity-lite and the emerging  interspiritual wild goose chase will never be blessed by the LORD God Almighty of the Bible; hence it is powerless to save anybody. Much of what we are really witnessing right now is a prophetic fulfillment of:

 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Evangelicalism Is Just About As Apostate Now As Rome Was In Luther’s Day

Today I appeal to you to awaken from this Lunacy in the Lord’s Name, a narcissistic nightmare being falsely portrayed as Christianity. If you have been taken in by these deceiving man-pleasers having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power; now you need to avoid such people (2 Timothy 3:5). Friend, I beseech you to pick up the Bible and check these things out for yourself.You need to understand that time is running out and you are playing a game with your life that has eternal stakes.

In the Lord I admonish you to forget that convoluted conversation within the Emerging Church; turn away from those sinner sensitive Purpose Driven/Seeker Driven musings, and run from the prideful prophets of Word Faith heresy before you end up right back in the bondage of the apostate Church of Rome along with all the rest of them. Do you really think the Protestant Reformation was wrong; because in order to follow these fools this is what you are going to have to believe. Let me close with the words of a powerful preacher of God’s Word just as the original liberalism would slithered in, Dr. R.A. Torrey.

These prophetic words speak ever so loudly to this pouty postmodern generation today. Torrey said:

There is no fear of God before their eyes. And the rejection of Jesus Christ—God the Son—Whom God the Father has appointed to be our Savior, our King, and our Lord, is the most daring and damning of all sins. There is nothing in this world that reveals what is in the human heart so clearly as what a man does with the real Lord and Christ. The rejection of Jesus Christ certainly proves a wicked heart. Hear this O sinner, the great question on the Judgment Day will be: “What did you do with Jesus Christ?”

Oh yes, I can imagine some people on that day. That man who sits in yonder gallery trying to make light of what I am saying tonight, he will be there. I can see him standing before the Judgment Bar. The throng will fall back, there will be a profound silence. Then comes rolling forth like the sound of mighty rushing waters the majestic Voice of the awesome and dreadful Judge: “You man, what did you do with Jesus Christ!” Who is to be the Judge that day? None other than Jesus Christ Himself.

The Lord Christ Jesus Whom you are rejecting is to be that Judge. This same Jesus Christ of Nazareth Whom you are robbing of the honor which is His due will be that Judge. That same Christ Who’s Divinity you are denying. And not that you have any real reason to deny it, but simply in your proud and arrogant heart you want to deny it. And you want to comfort yourself in your sin. That same Christ Whom you are trampling underfoot will sit as Judge that day.

That will be a very dark day for some. I can imagine that man or woman in this audience tonight who’s been telling their friends they do not believe that Jesus is God, and who’s been trampling the God the Son underfoot, and who have been resisting the invitations of mercy, maybe even for years now, you will stand before that Throne. And this same Christ Whom you have defamed and slandered, mocked and rejected, lied about and trampled underfoot, will be sitting as your Judge.

Friend, will you come to Him now while He sits upon the Throne of mercy? I beseech you, come to Him today while the question still is: “What will you do with Jesus Christ?” Because, O sinner, if you will not have mercy, then you need to know that you shall be judged by God’s perfect Law; and I assure you in the Lord, His justice will be done.

For it is written:

For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.

How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:26-31)

He who has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says…and obey Him…
